Any suggestions for getting play-doh out of carpet?

Aside from it being yellow and blue, it has been mashed in and dried. I picked out what I can, but now it's a big crusty blob in the middle of the floor.

  • A few ways.

    Mist it lightly with a water bottle/spray bottle (DO NOT SOAK IT!). It will moisten it enough to make it easier to pick out.

    Get a stiff bristle brush. Rub vigorously over crusty play-doh. Then vacuum.
